Young Adults More Trusting of Advertising

 

No consensus on who is trusted to regulate advertising industry

New York, NY – If advertising is created to sell a product, service or even an idea, it’s helpful if the message is not only clear but also believable to the intended audience. However, only one in five American adults say they trust that advertising is honest in its claims all or most of the time (19%). Rather, a majority say they trust that advertising is sometimes honest in its claims (65%) and just over one in ten say that they never trust that advertising is honest in its claims (13%).

These are some of the findings of a new Adweek Media/ Harris Poll, survey of 2,098 U.S. adults surveyed online between October 5th and 7th, 2010 by Harris Interactive. «Read the rest of this article»

“Medic!” Just another day for combat medic

 

Written by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Mark Burrell
210th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment 
 
Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBastogneNuristan Province, Afghanistan – At the beginning of an eight-hour firefight against insurgents, U.S. Army Spc. Brit B. Jacobs, a combat medic from Sarasota, FL, assigned to Company C, 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, Task Force No Slack, fires his M4 rifle from a remote hilltop in the Shal Valley in eastern Afghanistan’s Nuristan Province November 7th.

“My attitude as a medic is if I can end the evil, the bad stuff the enemy’s doing before they can hurt one of my guys, before I have to do my job, then that’s a good day for everybody,” said Jacobs. “Here in Afghanistan, you go to a combat zone and that’s where you earn the title combat medic. You’re treating causalities that get hit or wounded from enemy shots or explosions.”

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The economic data calendar was thin. Weekly claims for unemployment insurance benefits fell, but the numbers are normally choppy during this time of year (still, the underlying trend may be edging down due to better seasonal hiring this year). The September trade deficit was a bit narrower than assumed in the advance GDP report. Imports and exports fell sharply during the recession (narrowing the trade deficit considerably) and partly rebounded in the recovery (leading to a resumed widening of the deficit). However, recent figures suggest a flattening in these trends (and perhaps some stabilization in the size of the trade deficit, at least in the near term).

There was much interest ahead of the G-20 meeting (as with any such meeting), but these things always disappoint. The G-20 communiqué suggested no progress on reducing global imbalances or relieving monetary and fiscal policy tensions. The euro weakened on renewed sovereign debt worries (this time focusing mostly on Ireland, where austerity moves have done nothing to instill confidence). «Read the rest of this article»

Daily Devotional from Brother Shepherd

 

Morning SunriseGood morning! Good morning! Good morning! “It is a day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” There is an old song that says, “Every Day with Jesus is Sweeter than the Day Before”. I wonder sometimes why that is true and I’ve come to the conclusion that if I learn a little bit more about Jesus and His character and His love for me that each day does get a little more sweeter.

In a few days my wife will be celebrating her birthday and I might add she gets sweeter each day, (now that ought to get me in good with her). «Read the rest of this article»
